short description

The project aim is to develop a highly modular system which connects and interacts cross-vendor components. An architecture that is based on microservices and the clustering of these cellsThe goal shall be implemented. Achieving this objective, innovative and industry 4.0 compliant, real-time capable and event-driven communication technologies have to be selected and integrated.

These approaches tend to make the system inconsistent and vulnerable. To counteract this, technologies must be integrated that make the system robust and reliable and protect against cyberattacks. For the mutual cross-vendor integration of components a close cooperation with our partners is necessary and also a standardization of the results.

Häcker Automation will demonstrate prototypically that newly developed production processes can run on different production plants with components from our partners.
